A big HELLO from the UK

Hi all,
im a total Newbie to stock Photos!

Ive really got into my photography over the last year, doing family shoots (& a few weddings) for friends and family & expanding from there.

I thought id give stock a stab and try drum up a bit of pocket money (we all know how expensive camera equipment is)

Im totally stoked ive been accepted to Dreamstime, TOUGH looking at other peoples work – ive got a lot to learn lol

You guys are truly inspirational! – if you have and advice or comments on my pics so far – please do share.

Many thanks,

Welcome. Excellent work, you have talent. Sales will come, but be patient. Don't forget to shoot people, big money will come from this kind of photos. Have a nice day.

Popular This week and Popular Searches

A suggestion - titles factor in the search so don't title your images with cutesy titles. This isn't fine art and buyers usually search using descriptive words, not emotional ones. A buyer searching for "Naughty but Nice" is probably not looking for a chocolate cupcake. If they are trying to find an image to illustrate that concept and have decided that they want to illustrate it with a chocolate cupcake they will search for a chocolate cupcake. Good image by the way. After looking at it I find a need to go get myself something sweet.

Popular searches are not working as I see... maybe it's a bug, but check here: https://www.dreamstime.com/popular-photos
